Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you are diagnosed to have Chlamydia infection, both you and your partner should get treated simultaneously with same medications. Avoid having intercourse while being on treatment. If the infection reoccurs, then another doctor can find out about it.
If the infection is not treated or it reoccurs, it can lead to infertility problems later in life.
Take care.
